The Ol' In and Out

Yesterday out family went to the They Might Be Giants concert at the House of Blues in Dallas. It was an incredible show, fun for kids and adults alike. But before the concert, we had to find a place to park, and we did so in a lot next to the House of Blues. The attendant there charged us $10 and then gave us this ticket:

Apparently some people have mistaken the House of Blues for another kind of house.Notice the bottom part of the ticket with its rules on "in and out privileges."


And why put that phrase in quotes? Ironic intent, direct discourse, or code for something else?

In and out usually refers to people parking, running in to get something/drop someone off/wait to pick someone up, and then leaving. Basically, you don't get to be there for free just because you'll be in and out in a few minutes.
